Thursday....its quilting day

It was very overcast when we set off after lunch for the quilting group, dark clouds scudding past blue skies. DB drove me and brought the cases in and helped me to set up. He went for a walk and sat reading whilst I wrestled with the complexities of Jacobs Ladder.

The ladies arrived, it took a while for them to settle down, but we managed it in the end. A quick demo of the block for the next month and then we went on to things they might make for Christmas, we are starting in October on things for Christmas. Details of the Christmas meeting and the Secret Santa, someone wanted to know if DB was going to be Santa!!

Arriving home the chemist had been with DBs medication, our neighbours had taken it in......

DB spent some time this morning stacking the logs that were delivered last night at the back of the coal shed, the pile was almost up to the roof. A good job done. Once the grate has been fixed in we are ready to roll.

The sun is blasting away again now, we will not have to water tonight.

  1. What a fine day of fun and accomplishments you and DB - and the quilting ladies - have had!

    I can imagine the excitement generated when you spoke of Christmas projects and perhaps showed some of the lovely holiday items you've made. What the ladies have already learned can become Christmas, Autumn, or whatever season or holiday themed just by the fabrics that are chosen!

    This morning I sewed the two side borders on the Santa quilt so need to press them and square up the ends before I can sew the top and bottom borders on. Then - drum roll, please - this top will be finished!! A quilting day here, too!

    Hugs!
